MAAV Updates

The MAAV Walk Committee has been very busy!  The walk is only 22 days away and we still have a lot of fundraising to go to meet our goals.  I am the captain of my work team, Hallmark Health, and I'll be walking with several of my colleagues.  Family and friends are more than welcome to join me too!  Donate to me here!

The Walk Committe was photographed for the local newspaper.  Even as an adult I still get a kick out of being in the paper! :)

The Walk Leadership Members were also photographed for the local newspaper.  This is with our sponsor, Stephen's Auto Body.  Do you like our tee-shirts?  Ask me about how to purchase one!

We recently had the Walk Kick Off party for team captains and it was a great night.  In addition to a cute skit by 2 team captain we all had an opportunity to show our artistic side.  "Everyone Has A Hand In Stopping Violence" is a community art project that MAAV is doing in preparation for the walk.  By walk day this huge banner will be completely covered with hands from members of the community of all ages.  So far it looks great! 

Another night we had an event for community members to introduce our newest program, Center for Education in Violence Prevention.  It was a great event and we were honored to have author, Megan Kelly, there to read an excerpt from her new book Dear Bully.  If you are a teacher in Massachusetts I highly recommend our trainings especially the Bullying Prevention Trainings.  Let me know if you are interested in learning more.  For all teachers I highly recommend this book to you.  It is a great tool to use with students of all ages.  Check it out!
